The 15th Annual Original Lobster Festival is cookin’ this weekend in Long Beach, CA

Thousands come from miles around to get a taste of Maine’s best catch, the lobster. Tons of fresh, live Maine lobsters are flown in daily and steamed in the World’s Largest Cooker, prepared and served by Bristol Farms’ Master Chef. They have a giant food court with everything from ribs and chicken to sweets like smoothies and candied apples. There is also a children’s area, arts & crafts booths, dance floor, two stages with live entertainment and beach bars serving beer, margaritas, and other assorted drinks. Being the largest Lobster Festival outside of Maine, having the Pacific Ocean just footsteps away makes for a perfect setting.

A.J. Gibbs, The Mydeco Dance King, started the entertainment with his style of Zydeco dancing. Festival goers were having fun and dancing those calories off. The Chris Anderson Group followed with their toe-tapping music style. They play good bluesy, soulful, rock n’ roll music.  The music was perfect since the “Mardi Gras” motif was in the air.
